The best variety of grapes for decorating sweets like this are Muscat grapes. They are green, translucent and big enough to really make an impact when used as a dessert decoration or cake decoration. They are also firm enough to keep their shape when cut in half. Japanese Muscat grapes are, of course, the best. They are bred to be very large and very sweet in Japan. You don’t necessarily have to select this particular kind of grapes, but try to get large seedless and sweet grapes. You don’t want to ruin your dessert with a sour variety.
